When I saw the challenge word — ANGLE –this week from the blog A Word in Your Ear, I remembered this iconic cowboy we saw in Canyon, Texas. The bent-over figure with his elbow angled in the air seemed to say to me, “Howdy, ma’am. Welcome to Texas!”
I’ve later discovered that the town of Canyon is holding a fundraiser to preserve this 47-foot cowboy named Tex Randall. They want to restore Tex to his former glory and place him in a prominent location in a new park. It’s another angle I hadn’t considered: the ongoing challenge of historic preservation. But wouldn’t you want to save this guy if he were in your town? I would!
